A Late Victorian Burmese Ruby And Diamond Butterfly Brooch

Description

A late Victorian Burmese ruby and diamond butterfly brooch, the thorax and wings set with old European and rose-cut diamonds weighing approximately 4 carats in total, the abdomen and eyes set with faceted rubies, weighing approximately 1.3 carats in total, accompanied by GCS Report stating to be of Burmese origin with no indications of heating, all mounted in silver and yellow gold, to yellow gold carved legs, circa 1880, measuring approximately 4.5 x 2.5cm, gross weight 9.2 grams.

A stunning and intricate brooch. During the Victorian era, jewellery in the shape of insects was very popular. The popularity of insect jewellery and other jewellery featuring natural motifs can be linked to the late Victorians turning away from machine industrialization and once again embracing the beauty of nature. This brooch features wonderfully crafted legs and antennae, with a spectacular combination of vivid Burmese rubies and lively, sparkling diamonds. This brooch would make an eye-catching statement on a jacket lapel or pinned to a silk scarf.
